Students can pursue a major or minor in Anthropology in the classroom, online, or using a combination of traditional and online classes. Anthropology draws upon the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences to answer compelling questions about humankind. Today’s world is changing and shrinking. An informed understanding of cultural, biological, and linguistic similarities and differences and their connection to the human past is central to almost any career. Students have the opportunity to concentrate their coursework in one of the four major subfields: cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. Our program places special emphasis on the environment. You can pursue a focus in an interdisciplinary track with another major or minor. Of the 120 credits you need to graduate, you must earn 33 credits in anthropology coursework. Through in-depth skills development in research, data management, critical thinking, and collaboration, WIU Anthropology graduates will have a global education in a discipline that combines sciences and the humanities. We offer an archaeology field school as well as short-term study abroad courses to Germany and Puerto Rico.
